Friday 13th January 2017

- Our Branch was very busy in 2017 answering over 25,000 contacts by telephone, email and text.  We also give talks and support the local prisons at Portland.  We are always happy to respond to any requests for support or information about the service we offer.

- We are always ready to welcome new Listening Volunteers and provide excellent training, mentoring and the opportunity to develop your volunteering role with Samaritans  We also welcome Support Volunteers for a variety of roles including fundraising.

In order for potential volunteers to understand a little more about our organisation, what we do, how we train volunteers and our expectations once they are trained, we hold regular information sessions at our Centre, 13 King Street, which is opposite Weymouth railway station.  Why not come along to one of these sessions which last for about an hour and take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

The next scheduled Information Sessions are as follows:

  • Wed. 9th January 2019, either at 6.00 or 7.00pm.

Or if a Saturday is better for you, come along at 10 am on  Sat. 19th January 2019

There will then be a Selection Day for new applicants on 9th Feb. 2019.

If you have any questions or want to confirm which session you can attend then eithr ring our Administration number and leave a message.. 01305 770598
